Wanted: Bavarian Genealogist

WANTED: BAVARIAN GENEALOGIST….A few days ago I was surfing around the web trying to plan a trip to Germany with my mother. We were thinking that early June would be a good time to go, but I got suddenly suspicious when I saw this at a hotel’s website:

Fu?ball-Weltmeisterschaft (29.05.-21.06.) Preis auf Anfrage

Hmmm. Turns out there’s some big soccer shindig in Germany this June and every hotel in the country is booked solid. Who knew?

So I guess it’s July for us, which means hot weather and lots of crowds. Bummer. And I still have to figure out how to hire a German genealogist in the vicinity of Bad Kissingen to help us dig up our Bavarian ancestors. I’m not even sure where to start on that. Besides, won’t they all be on vacation?
